Ballad Of Ishmael Day

Ishmael Day's Wikipedia entry.  Where it happened -- the Ishmael Day house in the vicinity of Gunpowder Falls.  Ishmael Day (1792 - 1873) at FindAGrave.  


Ishmael a descendant of Edward Day and Avarilla Taylor (and I'm related to the Days and Taylors):

 In my early Maryland family tree, Arthur Taylor's grandson, John Greer, married Sarah Day, daughter of Nicholas and Sarah Day.  

Sarah (Day) Greer was the sister of Edward Day, who married "Avarilla Taylor, daughter of John Taylor and granddaughter of Arthur Taylor of Baltimore Co. (Faulkner, 10; St. John's Parish Register, 17-R)... ."  "Edward [Day] and Avarilla* lived at Taylor's Mount."
